Crash and Burn, Baby!

Got home Sunday to find my computer had crashed. Teenage son says he has nothing to do with it, but I am still not sure. Anyway, hubby got 'er back up and running last night (thank goodness!). I was a bit freaked out because I didn't have things backed up at all. The first thing I did when the computer turned on last night was back up my word documents (which is my preschool brain) and all of my picture files.

Now you would think I would have had four days to make stuff to show you all, but I did not :(. I have been very busy preparing for preschool. We don't officially start until next week, but we had a playdate in the park today, complete with crafts and games and story. So it may be a few more days until I get to the garage.

I did have a little fun with spray paint. I spray painted this brown urn black, along with some shells. I then used silver rub on them, which is way fun and addicting. Be careful though it can be messy too. I also spray painted some of the shells silver. Joy at Joys of Home hosted a spray paint party. Now she was trying to think out of the black box, because she has admitted an addiction to black spray paint. but I am just new to it.

Have a great labor day weekend. I should be posting once or twice through the weekend so check back!


  1. I love a nice black urn! And the black and silver shells look great. I can't believe you're new to spray paint. I'm warning you, it does become addicting because it's faster than brush on. Although there are some pieces of furniture that I still prefer to paint by hand.
    I am so impressed with the wonderful things you create. You are so very talented!!!
    Thank you so much for mentioning me in your post.

  2. I've been thinking of spraying some shells silver. I'm pleased to know it works!

  4. I love how the black and silver shells look in the black urn. You do such wonderful work painting..I'm still a little sloppy on the spraying..need practice!!!
